Here is a list of some of the BEST beaches in the USA. [Great American Beach Towns]

Ogunquit, Maine 

 

The sand: Three and a half miles of white-sand beaches on a long hook of land, separated from the mainland by the mouth of the Ogunquit River.

 

 

Mexico Beach, Florida 

 

The sand: Around these three miles of confectioners’-sugar sands, you’ll see bald eagles, sea turtles, dolphins—and only a few footprints.

 

 

Newport, Rhode Island 

 

The sand: Beaches for every budget, from exclusive clubs to free, secluded spots on Aquidneck Island.

 

 

Folly Beach, South Carolina 

 

The sand: A six-mile barrier island with room for surfers, beachcombers, and shellfish aficionados, 15 minutes south of Charleston.

 

 

Saugatuck, Michigan
